Otome VN Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds Heads to PC This Summer

Idea Factory International is bringing Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds to PC.

The Idea Factory-produced visual novel will launch sometime this summer for PC, via Steam. The new PC release will have updated visuals, as well as English, Japanese, and Traditional Chinese language options.

Originally launched for PS Vita in North America and Europe this past May, the game is the first in a two-part story.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Idea Factory:

1863. As the end of the Bakumatsu period draws closer…

A lone Chizuru Yukimura travels from Edo to Kyoto in hopes of searching for her father who mysteriously vanished. As she ventures through the unfamiliar city in the dark of night, she is suddenly attacked by a gang of samurai. Amidst the chaos, a mysterious figure approaches her, hungry for the taste of blood.
As the threat of danger approaches, she is saved by none other than the Shinsengumi.

After their encounter, Chizuru lives with the men of the Shinsengumi to fulfill their common goal: seeking out her missing father. However, she slowly uncovers the Shinsengumi’s dark secret: The Furies. A group of men calling themselves “Demons” eventually confront the Shinsengumi, standing in opposition to their secret Fury identity.

Upon meeting these Demons, Chizuru is forced to come face to face with the secrets of her past. This story is about a girl who allies with the men of the Shinsengumi, who are struggling to uphold their faith in an era of rapid social change in Japan.

    hakuoki is an amazing otome game, but kyoto winds is only the FIRST HALF ! aka as the common route, kyoto winds ends just as the character specific, lovey dovey routes start. the second game is out in japan and has been announced for localization, but be aware that if you buy kyoto winds you won’t be getting the full game. if you don’t care about any of the 6 new routes added, then the original hakuoki game is avaliable on psp, vita, ps3 and is a complete game!
